and detached. >> glenn: i felt so eremote and detached from washington, i didn't know what they were doing. like where's waldo? where is obama? what happened to him? can we get a picture of him from time to time? there were 158 obama interviews in the last year. 411 speeches, comments and. stays in his first -- statements in his first year. how much touch do you think we need from him? you know what? if we could have just seen him without his shirt on, then maybe oh! oops, we did. maybe just an occasional photo with him and his wife -- okay, we got that, too. wow! that would have been great, huh? we didn't see him enough. the man was every place! the only place he didn't show up in, was my bedroom to personally talk to my wife and make sweet love to her. at least i don't think he did. i'm pretty sure that was john edwards doing that. but i'm not sure yet. because so far john edwards is still denying it. what obama either doesn't understand or maybe he just doesn't care is that what america is needing is president that is maybe not a radical revolutionary trying to fundamentally transform a
about how big a deal scott brown is in washington. don't believe me, believe nancy. >> in its present form without any change, i don't think it's possible to pass the senate bill in the house. >> neil: nancy saying that hours after scott was saying this. >> everybody's a 41st vote now and i don't think it's just republicans. there's a sense not only in massachusetts but around the country that the back room deals and lack of transparency and solving problems is getting old. >> neil: get ready, washington is getting a revolution and one mike huckabee saw it coming. former governor and fox host joining me. stuff you saw come something materializing. what do you make of them retrenching? >> it's a first sign of reality that they expressed in months. they have been pushing this healthcare bill nobody wanted and listened only to themselves. and they've even really kind of hidden themselves from the very people they work for. their bosses. they don't want town meetings or go to the districts. they stayed until christmas eve. i'm not sure santa claus showed up but the election was an inescap
cool air to transition the cold rain which will start here tonight in washington over to this wintry mix which will include the possibility of a little freezing rain around here, maybe some sleet, and you get the idea. maybe even snow in downtown washington before all is said and done. either way, it should all be out of here i think by tomorrow afternoon. and by tomorrow evening we'll be left with cold conditions to start the weekend. so this won't be an all-day -- it won't last for too long of a period of time and i don't think we'll see significant snow accumulation here in washington. off to the north and west where i showed you the winter orm watch, you could see snow totals maybe 2-4 inches of snow. here in washington no advisories at this hour and i would expect accumulations to be held down because we'll see sleet and freezing rain. so maybe a slushy inch of snow across the immediate washington area. increasing clouds and high temperature only 40 degrees. winds out of the east at 5-10. the problems keep going tonight. i mentioned the winter storm watch off to the west. overni
